Gary Fisher Temporary Structures A recording of a rehearsal the night before a concert that was cancelled. Temporary Structures is a continuous, improvised, live composition in three loose ‘movements’ moving through different combinations of instruments and objects and forming smaller compositions and cycles that overlap and leak into each other, sounds falling in and fading out or popping up suddenly (the accidental sound of a Sinclair ZX Spectrum game tape signals the end of the first...

Gary Fisher Nervous System Recorded in October 2008 in the week before Fisher’s first live performance at Womb in Manchester.

The feel then changes slightly with a a series of improvised, live, loop compositions of crackles, knocks, scrapes, clunks,...

The 9 tracks are all live improvisations recorded over two days. Some are multi layered compositions using a Loopstation, such as the rumbling and clattering first...
